5G's rapid deployment spikes demand vast amounts of data storage. Emerging 5G applications, including telemedicine, smart healthcare, and smart poles, demand storage devices that can provide high-speed, low-latency and stable operation during high-quality, high-resolution image data transmission to permit AI image recognition and auxiliary diagnoses. Fortunately, Apacer's latest PCIe Gen4 x4 SSD is stepping up to the plate, and it adopts the latest BiCS5 112-layer 3D NAND Flash memory technology. This indicates ultra-high performance and reliability, a stable supply, and a more competitive cost per unit.

Real-time imaging data plays an essential role in 5G healthcare applications. But to be effective, it needs high-resolution images that are extremely clear and focused.

Compared to the PCIe Gen 3 interface, the company's PCIe Gen4 x4 SSD delivers double the bandwidth and data transfer rate, significantly lowering power consumption. It will find a place in many complex industrial applications. For example, paired with its CoreGlacier cooling technology, it can combat the overheating and lower speed rates associated with high-end processing. When combined with its DataDefender and End-to-End Data Protection technologies, it can enhance data integrity in systems where the power supply is abnormal or unreliable. And for healthcare applications where patient data may be at risk, it can benefit from AES 256-bit hardware encryption and Signed Firmware technology to increase security.

Currently, its PCIe Gen4 x4 SSD, PV930-M280, is claimed to be the fastest industrial M.2 SSD on the market. It is fully compliant with the NVMe 1.4 specification. When it comes to read/write speeds, it provides 851,000/651,000 IOPS. It has also been proven to support continuous read/write speeds of 6,810/4,730 MB/s. It even complies with the EN60601-1-2 medical equipment standard for electromagnetic sensitivity, providing exceptional electrostatic protection for medical devices.
